Taliban Reintroduce Executions, Amputations, Plan To Use Social Media To Spread Their Message

Click to see full-size image

The new Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan is beginning to resemble the old one quite a bit.

One of the founders of the Taliban and the chief enforcer of its harsh interpretation of Islamic law and current prisons minister Nooruddin Turabi said that executions would be resumed in the Central Asian country, as well as amputations of hands for various crimes.

In an interview with Associated Press, Mullah Nooruddin Turabi dismissed outrage over the Taliban’s executions in the past, which sometimes took place in front of crowds at a stadium, and warned the world against interfering with Afghanistan’s new rulers.

“Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments,” Turabi said in Kabul. “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Qur’an.”

He said, however, that the new (old) punishments would take place away from public eye, possibly.

Turabi, now in his early 60s, was justice minister and head of the so-called ministry of propagation of virtue and prevention of vice, during the Taliban’s previous rule.

At that time, the world denounced the Taliban’s punishments, which took place in Kabul’s sports stadium or on the grounds of the sprawling Eid Gah mosque, often attended by hundreds of Afghan men.

Executions of convicted murderers were usually by a single shot to the head, carried out by the victim’s family, who had the option of accepting “blood money” and allowing the culprit to live. For convicted thieves, the punishment was amputation of a hand. For those convicted of highway robbery, a hand and a foot were amputated.

Turabi said that this time, judges (and these judges would include women) would adjudicate cases, but the foundation of Afghanistan’s laws will be the Qur’an. He said the same punishments would be revived.

“Cutting off of hands is very necessary for security,” he said, saying it had a deterrent effect. He said the cabinet was studying whether to carry out punishments in public and will “develop a policy”.

On at least two occasions in Kabul in the past week, men accused of petty theft have been packed into the back of a pickup truck, their hands tied, and were paraded around to humiliate them.

In one case, their faces were painted to identify them as thieves. In the other, stale bread was hung from their necks or stuffed in their mouth.

In his interview with AP, Turabi spoke to a woman journalist.

“We are changed from the past,” he said.

He said now the Taliban would allow television, mobile phones, photos and video “because this is the necessity of the people, and we are serious about it”.

He suggested that the Taliban saw the media as a way to spread their message.

“Now we know instead of reaching just hundreds, we can reach millions,” he said. He added that if punishments are made public, then people may be allowed to video or take photos to spread the deterrent effect.

Even as Kabul residents express fear over their new Taliban rulers, some acknowledge grudgingly that the capital has already become safer in just the past month.

The boy’s circumcision is an anti Islamic and anti Allah will. Majority of prophets were uncircumcised. The prophet Muhammad hated cicumcission so much that even he had never liked to circumcise himself. The prophet Muhammad was kind with children, women, prisoners (slaves), birds and animals. He never interfered in people’s personal matters. That is why Islam spread rapidly due to his kindness.

Circumcision is not that important here.


You are the biggest Idiot after Ahson on this forum LMFAO. You write pure Bullshit


I’d fukk your dad in front of you? if you want me to? I’d even knock him up!


I have studied the Quran. Sharia law is a conspiracy against Islam. It is a fake Islamic law which does not exist in the Quran.

Allah and his prophets have given freedom to men and women and have never interfered in their personal lives. In the Quran it is also mentioned that many prophets lived with women without marriages, even some for one night stands.

If you have read,(probably have) Saudi version, then everything is upside down.


The prophet Muhammad had never imputed any thief or stoned adulterer. The harsh rules of punishment against humans and animals are against Allah will and it is clear un-Islamic and obviously barberism and terrorism. They think these harsh Sharia rules will give protection to their regimes is a clear delusion.


That is correct. While I know that from scholarly exchange and my own research, here is the take of a Muslim scholar on that (especially origin of the infamous stoning hadeeth): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8R0pa2URPY


“The hudud crime of theft is referred to in Quran verse 5:38: As to the thief, male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.”

Nice try, subversive kike. Jew bastard, saturn’s servant, slave of baal-moloch and all telluric forces. The taliban serve higher principles than you ever will, vermin.

What else was expected from these savages?

Leave the Taliban alone. Afghanistan is an independent sovereign country. The Taliban struggled for their sovereignty and independence for 20 years, and finally achieved that after defeating the US imperialists. How the Taliban live their lives is none of anyone’s business.

Chris Gr

Leave the HTS/ISIS alone. Syria and Iraq are independent sovereign countries. HTS/ISIS struggled for their sovereignty and independence for 20 years and finally achieved that after defeating the US/Russian imperialoists. How the HTS/ISIS live their lives is none of anyone’s business.

The Objective

Then invade Afghanistan

Chris Gr

When the time comes.


Why Somali nigger? They killing each other just fine no? No need to invade.

Chris Gr

What bullshit are you talking about?


the dudes a nigglet from somalia, but he supports turkey and ISIS/ HTS…..lol

Chris Gr



Dumb and clueless nonsense ^. HTS/ISIS are imported terrorists, the Taliban are not. HTS/ISIS are fighting against legal government, not against ‘imperialists’. Again, don’t try to be smart. You are not.

Chris Gr

I was joking. And Taliban are imported from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and nowadays Iran. HTS say that they fight against Russian and Iranian imperialism (and also American). And HTS has enjoyed Taliban a lot.


Hey now, don’t lump sum them talibunnies with Iran. Iran’s got nothing to do with sunni wahabbi shit islam. Many thanks.

Chris Gr

They did support Taliban though.


Nope. Purely a transactional relationship with the former regime providing goods and services, oil and gas refined fuel and grain, cuz Ashraf Ghani had US dollars to spare. Now these motherfucker talibs are a burden. Charity only goes so far. Issue now is that without Iran, these talibs can’t survive. Biden targeted Iran by pulling out of Afghanistan. Sooner or later the humanitarian crises will kick in. Talibs got no one else to look up to. Pakistan is busted ass and near bankruptcy. Russia/ China hate muzlims with a passion, specially the wahabbi/ jihadist kind. You see where this is going? Biden’s taken a shit all over Iran. A very cunning move on his part. Supporting 40 million tribal illiterates who are not even food secure is a real drama and will hurt the Iranian pockets.

It is not like that. Ghani was with the US that’s why Iran supported the Taliban.


dude…….never mind….lol……. I’d go hit the meth pipe. You wanna join me? we’d discuss this then all fukkin strung out?

Duni ga ti.


Such laws aren’t Islamic. The prophet never applied them and they’re not demanded in the Coran. In fact, it is important to understand the diction of Middle Eastern Laws, from Mesopotamia, through the Bible and Islam. What is said is that one life equal the other in worth. Not to take another life! Look at how Arabic tribes do it, they gave, talk and virtually always settle payment or like compensation. Only a terror state needs such laws. Really nothing to do with Islam. Same as the death sentence in the US, hardly Christian either.


Religion is all about interpretation, my friend. I’m sure that if you asked the Taliban where in the Koran they got their ideas, they could tell you all about it. Depending on how you interpret the story of the Garden of Eden, Satan is a selfish, rebellious servant who tried to spite God by corrupting His children, or he’s a hero who, like the Prometheus of Greek mythology, enlightened mankind, freeing them from the tyranny of an unjust God. Both sides are equally as right because God hasn’t exactly descended from Heaven to correct the record, now has He? The letter of your storybook doesn’t matter, only what you take away from it.

Very, very right.


The punishment here seems to fit the crime, so I don’t know what all this hoopla is about. Who gives a fuck about a bunch of lowdown crooks, anyway?


Social media???? Big mistake. All anti-social media controlled by the US should be banned in every country in the world – Facesbook, Twatter, Instacrap, JewTube/Poogle… and Tik-Tok. Yes, it’s Chinese, but just stupid.

Icarus Tanović

What else to expect from these barbarians? Nothing else, American stooges, that wants to smear Islam with any monstrosities they Zionists and CIA can think of.

Jens Homo

LOL at all the Islamic scholars offering their expert interpretations here

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
